Subject: "Cosmology: Story of the Cosmos and other tales"
Presented By: Omid Saremi

Theoretical physics over the past century has drastically shifted the way we perceive the physical world. Physicists seem to be a few steps closer to a convincing answer to a few longstanding-some as old as humanity itself-questions about the universe. Was there a beginning or will there be an end for our universe? Or our universe is Eternal? In order to
answer questions like above, modern physicists have invented a new theory called "string theory". In string theory electrons and other particles in nature are not point like objects rather they are little vibrating strings.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
